2018-09-07 Triangulum Galaxy (M33)

After familiar targets of ending summer, I had my second go at this subject. My first try was a disaster, with the alt-az preventing subs long enough to capture useful signal; The EQ being more stable (despite bad PA) I could extend subs to catch this more satisfying result.

Making progress, more subs to be added later.

Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Skywatcher 130PDS 632mm/4.86 and SWCC at f/4.55 on Omegon EQ-300 tracking RA
Capture: 41 average lights × 40s × 3200 ISO, master dark
Site: deep country 26km from Limoges, France
Sky: good (given bortle class 3, usual sqm 21.4)
Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+
